MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - JUN 25, 2009
Bottle (750ml). Aged roughly 1 year piror to tasting. Poured fizzy burnt copper with a tiny, frothy, off-white head which was fully diminishing. A woody aroma with toffee malts, burnt sugar, figs, preserved plums, toffee apple sweets and hints of varnish. Flavor was a tangy acidic bitterness with sweet bready malts, strong notes of lemon citrus, zesty oranges, dry pears, crisp apples, caramelized figs and some good woody notes. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry mouthfeel, thick texture and a decent length finish.

An earthy floral aroma with toasted malts and light notes of dark fruits, amber colour with a light rocky off white head, good lacing, sweet toffee flavour along with dark fruits and light spice, medium body, warming, this is good!

The description on this got us all excited for a strong Belgian style ale. This may of got us off in direction. We prepared ourselves for Parmesan, but we got Gouda. Prepared for grapefruit but got pomelo. It's not a bad thing though, with a bottle this size subtlety is key. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle poured (in several tranches) into a wine tasting glass. First of this style for me - so rating without comparison. Too dark to be copper - but along those hues far towards brown on the colour scale. Burnished copper? Off white head. Depending upon temperature - all malt/ toffee, once warming up a hint of bread, bannana and at the back some current/dark fruits - very, very subtle.

BOTTLE. Ruby to brown pour with small flat off white head.. Malty nose, banana, bread but all very subtle.. Easy toasted toffee malt body, goes a creamy thick mouth feel, dark fruit & malt kick finish.. Sourced RW

Bottle- pours brown with a small off white head. Aroma is oaky, bit of funk and sweet malt. Taste is sweet up front then developing into a tart dry finish.

On tap at Bridge Road, pours a dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted oak upfront, with and earthiness, and rustic notes. Flavour is earthy, with lots of toasted oak, and even a touch of fruitiness. Really nice stuff. Quite authentic for the style. Very enjoyable.

Kurtos (204) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2015
Purchased as part of bridge roads 24 beers till Christmas countdown Bottle. Pours black with a earthy red hue. Aroma. quite a complex nose, of currant, bubblegum, cinnamon, a general spiciness and caramelized/burnt toffee. Taste. On entry i get a very malt forward beer, consisting of deep and dark fruit flavours such as cherries, currants and a slight sourness. Overall. quite a decadent and very hard for me to describe, as ive tested very few of its kind.
